Yeah, where did you see these films? Are you two members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences? :mishchief:
Our new(ish) art museum had a one time only screening. That museum is our one glimmer of culture in this "cowboys and Indians" wasteland. :wink:

SAW :0star: This movie was boring and dumb. Nothing scary about it, no gore, no nudity, and preposterous twists. Still not as bad as Alexander
Constantine :3.5stars: Despite some minor flaws I enjoyed this movie alot. Good action scenes and a decent story
Re-Animator (mill.ED) :3.5stars: Get some friends rent this movie and laugh your ass off. This was alot of fun to make fun of.

Back to business:
Battle Royale :4.5stars: Hilarious allegory for leaving school, and entering the cut-throat business of real "Life". All the kids put in a good performance, and Takeshi Kitano is his usual phlegmatic, violent but likeable arsehole. The scene in the Lighthouse, where the tongue in the director's cheek becomes too obvious not to notice, is probably the highlight of the film. Enjoyed it tremendously.
Trapped :3stars: Pretty Mom Charlize Theron has a bad day when her asthmatic daughter is kidnapped. Salacious kidnapper Kevin Bacon has a bad day when pretty Mom turns out to be one feisty tigress. Smarmy doctor Stuart Townsend loses his cool when informed of the kidnapping by skanky accomplice Courtney Love. Weak-kneed kidnapper Pruitt Taylor Vince freaks out all the time, and intelligent but pale kidnapped girl Dakota Fanning is scarily precocious. The usual kidnapping drivel.

The Day the Earth Stood Still (:4stars:) - Excellent. Must have been amazing to see when it came out in 1951. Good story. Michael Rennie was really good.

Animal House (1978) - second time - :4.5stars:
Very funny throughout, although I suspect the recent avatar-madness helped too. I still think Dean Wormer is the funniest character of the lot.

Paths of Glory (1957) - first time - :3stars:
Sorry, but this was a prety boring movie. It was interesting and well-shot (and -acted in some parts) but it dragged on and on, and didn't feel like it was going anywhere.

The Night of the Hunter (1955) - first time - :3.5stars:
Robert Mitchum was pretty damn good, and there was a lot of suspense. The first part though felt very predictable and long-winded, but in the second half, everything picked up. Still "only" a 7/10 though. Maybe I just couldn't get over seeing a young Peter Graves.

The Wrong Arm of the Law (1963) - first time - :3.5stars:
Sellers was really funny, as expected, but not many of the others were. It had some really great scenes, but overall, it was a little disappointing.

Weird Science (1985) - first time - :3stars:
I can definitely see why so many teenage boys in the 80s would have loved this movie, and also why so many value its nostalgia today. I liked it for what it was; I liked the fantasy/sci-fi elements and the boys (AMH and Mitchell-Smith) were really cute.

I dug Jodie Foster. The it seemed really weird when Reagan got shot. I haven't been gaga about any celebrity since.

Crap, I need to update this more often.

The Motorcycle Diaries :2.5stars: Nothing special.

The China Syndrome :3.5stars: Good story, okay acting

Vanishing Point :2stars: Very dated.

The Great Escape (rewatch) :5stars: Excellent

Dogville :3stars: Odd, but okay. I had no idea it was shot like it was, which was pretty interesting.

Father was a Fullback :2.5stars: Nothing much here - move along.

Jaws (rewatch) :4.5stars: Let my son see it uncut for the first time. He did fine.

The Maltese Falcon :4.5stars: Almost :5stars: Great performances

It Happened One Night :4stars: Pretty damn funny, good performances.

I Image Huckabees :3stars: Could increase on future viewings. Enjoyable, but a bit too odd for the mood I was in.

Hollywood Shuffle (rewatch, but almost 15 years ago) :4stars: Still holds up pretty well.

Marty :4stars: Not much of a story, but Borgnine pulls you in.
